What I don't understand is

What I don't understand is why this roadwork was not started in the summer time, when student enrollment at CFCC is lower than the fall semester. This would have provided downtown workers and students with a period to become adjusted to the new traffic pattern, therefore, when CFCC met in the fall, those workers and students who were adjusted to the new traffic pattern would not be so grossly affected and could avoid the mass traffic jams I've been seeing.

Also, why can the work not be done during the evening hours? Cutting traffic down to one lane in each direction during normal working / school hours baffles me! It seems like poor planning on the City's part. Please realize that it is not only the students at CFCC that are affected, but also ALL of those who are employed by downtown industries, who must now compensate for the additional traffic by leaving their residences earlier and earlier each day. What happens when the school buses start to run again? Imagine the traffic nightmare that will cause! I think this whole renovation could have been better planned. Just my humble opinion...
